Description

This training event is organised in 2 parts, starting with Disability Equality Training.This session is faciltated by Madissa Asgari, MA, BA (Hons) who has a physical impairment.

The session is interactive and involves various group activities.

This session will aim to inform participants of what Autism is, the various forms and how to treat people with the condition appropriately. With this in mind, attendees will be given clear advice on how to help a person with autism feel more comfortable within various situations. All this will be done through highlighting various examples from the trainer’s own life experiences of living with the condition. Furthermore, to give various perspectives on the condition, the course will also look at how the condition affects others: particularly family members.

Training objectives:

  • To discuss own experiences of living with Autism
  • To discuss the experiences of Autism from a parent’s and sibling’s perspective
